So I'm attempting the whole 'National Post Once A Day' thing. Although, I wound up not posting anything over the weekend but figure posting twice on Friday and Monday *totally* counts. Today is another picspam post because if ya'll love ghost towns, you'll love a GHOST CITY even more!!

Viceland: An hour or so’s sail from the port of Nagasaki, the abandoned island silently crumbles. A former coal mining facility owned by Mitsubishi Motors, it was once the most densely populated place on earth, packing over 13,000 people into each square kilometre of its residential high-risers. It operated from 1887 until 1974, after which the coal industry fell into decline and the mines were shut for good. With their jobs gone and no other reason to stay in this mini urban nightmare, almost overnight the entire population fled back to the mainland, leaving most of their stuff behind to rot.

It's 'National Post Once a Day Month'! Which gives me the opportunity to post pretty pics (not taken by me)! I've had this bookmarked for almost two years and am finally getting around to posting it. Hell, I can't even remember how I found the site other than a general interest in photography and love for looking at pretty pictures.

Picture by Richard Ehrlich

Courtesy Fogonazos: "Kolmanskop is a ghost town in southern Namibia, a few kilometers inland from the port of Lüderitz. In 1908, Luederitz was plunged into diamond fever and people rushed into the Namib desert hoping to make an easy fortune. Within two years, a town, complete with a casino, school, hospital and exclusive residential buildings, was established in the barren sandy desert. But shortly after the drop in diamond sales after the First World War, the beginning of the end started. During the 1950's the town was deserted and the dunes began to reclaim what was always theirs. Soon the metal screens collapsed and the pretty gardens and tidy streets were buried under the sand. Doors and windows creaked on their hinges, cracked window panes stared sightlessly across the desert. A new ghost town had been born."

For the full series of pics, visit photographer Richard Ehrlich, under 'Sand Houses'. There's also an eerie yet fascinating video on the Fogonazos site.

Heh, I got all this via a link from [ profile] ariestess. Cliff Notes version - Sci-Fi author K. Tempest Bradford takes resurrected Realms of Fantasy magazine to task for constantly putting fantasy art with only females on their covers. During the course of discussion, someone, *not* K. Tempest Bradford, creates a mock RoF cover featuring a semi-nude male, which Bradford later posts on her blog. Someone, or someone's, miffed about the post talks to Harlan Ellison about Bradford calling RoF sexist. Harlan Ellison proceeds to make a COMPLETE AND UTTER ASS of himself.. again. It should be noted, Ellison has since apologized. Regardless, the ensuing flap had the predictable outcome of derailing the conversation, the topic of which was a magazine devoted to fantasy and science fiction with a large female readership constantly putting up covers for the sole purpose of appealing to male readers.

Anyway, enough about that, what does any of that have to do with this post? I was so inspired - I MADE REALMS OF FANTASY COVER PRoN!! That's what! Sure, in the pictures below the cut, I could have used the original models. But why be so boring when I can photoshop Gerard Butler and Karl Urban as horny satyrs holding their erect satyr-hoods in their hands as they gaze seductively into camera!?! Heh, someone somewhere *really* regrets giving me Photoshop!

Needless to say, this is soo NOT SAFE FOR WORK!! But, what do I know, I haven't had a job for so long I've forgotten what the Hell that means!!

If Realms of Fantasy were actually 'Fair and Balanced' and, apparently, run by the same people who do Cosmo.. )

So, after finally having watched this movie (after it being recced by [ profile] fembuck, I thought I'd try my hand at picspamming. I watched this movie after watching "I Can't Think Straight" expecting to be disappointed and I was thoroughly surprised at how much I enjoyed it, to the point that I honestly couldn't believe both movies were made by the same writer/director. Strangely enough, watching "The World Unseen" made me like "I Can't Think Straight" more.

Yes, the movie is flawed more so, imo, because of its budget (I really do think it would have been better with about 30 minutes tacked on to shed a bit more light on some of the subplots). Someone somewhere compared it to "Fried Green Tomatoes", which I think is an apt description. And while I'd say Fried Green Tomatoes is the better movie, "The World Unseen" resonated with me more.

More than anything, I have to say Lisa Ray and Sheetal Sheth have, like, *amazing* chemistry. I want writer/director Shamin Sharif to win the lottery or something so Enlightenment Productions can make movies where Ray and Sheth continually play a couple!

The World Unseen.. A Picspam )

Lawless performed two shows at the Roxy in LA last weekend. Seriously, when I heard about this, I almost *drove* down there. Now, I'm sad I didn't. Because..

Lucy Lawless in school girl outfit makes my pants happy!

*sigh* When is Bitchslap coming out again?

ETA: Pic of Lucy because who doesn't like to look at pictures of hot women shoving other women's faces into their crotches!!

ETA2: I have no idea who to credit for the photos since the New Film Dimension site doesn't actually credit the photographer. But, THANK YOU, who ever you are! You are my new hero!

Still reeling from this years Nano fail, and stuck on that Criminal Minds smutfic I promised [ profile] ralst.. well, technically, she promised to beat me with a frying pan if I didn't write a CM smutfic. And really, there's nothing worse than getting writer's block right at the moment JJ's kissing her way up Emily's inner thigh. I've thought about going to see a therapist regarding my writer's block issues but how exactly do you find a therapist who won't look at you funny when you say 'Help me Obi-Wan! I can't write hot girl-on-girl smut!'?

Anyhoo, all this lack of creative writing energy manifested into me playing around with Photoshop on one of the ideas rummaging around in my head for ages. Which brings me to this -

First snow of the season. Whee!! And I didn't have to work today. So I don't have to worry about getting plowed into by some bad driver. The image quality could be better. I'm using a digital cam that's like 147 in dog years. This thing is totally on its last legs but still keeps on ticking.


The view from the front entrance to my apartment.


The view from my balcony.

And now, similar shots two hours later.

I finally joined the 21st Century and opened a flickr account. I've uploaded some of my vacation pics, at least the ones I consider the best. I still haven't commented on all the photos because I forgot to take notes during some of the tours and am having to use my very sketchy memory!


The rest can be found at my flickr page - here.

*sigh* You know what washes the bad taste of the USWNT acting like a bunch of Mean Girls, Painkiller Jane sucking like a black hole, Bionic Woman being a giant disappointment?

A Pic of Jill Wagner Looking Really, Really Gay!! )

Thanks to a headsup from [ profile] viciouswishes I now know that Tricia Helfer posed for Playboy. And that [ profile] saturn92103 has scanned the pics and posted them here. And that anything else I post will fall into the 'too much information' category. So, I'll just leave it at 'dude, Six is *hot*!!

Changed my header again. It's not that I didn't like the old one, I just wanted something that brought out Jill Wagner's eyes a bit more. Because, really, JW has just gorgeous eyes. Not to thrilled with the current color scheme for the rest of my LJ. Never was a fan of light text on dark backgrounds, so that might be changing as well. Plus, I'm not sure how long this header will stay up thanks to being pointed towards a smorgasborg of Blade pics by [ profile] thelana via [ profile] fembuck's LJ.

Now, for something a little less depressing - Ziva! I opened my TV Guide to discover an nice little article on Cote with a hot pic to boot!

Made another photomanip, okay only one manip this time. And, not only is it femslash picspam, it's totally Safe For Work!!

Another Reason to Watch Blade )

I don't talk about this show *nearly* as much as I should because anything I want to say usually comes out in 'Guh, that was good.' and 'Whoo doggy, Krista is HOT!'. So, I've finally gathered my thoughts enough to try and entice ya'll, my flist, into watching this show. And please, don't let the fact that it's on Spike stop you. Really, it's good. Even better, I bring picspam you can totally look at while at work!

And here I was about to upload some more naked footballer pics! Just checked my previous picspam posts and some of my pics have been removed! Whee, thank goodness I don't have a paid photobucket account or else I'd be pissed! I was always wary of photobucket anyway since all public pics go into a public browser. Which I don't particularly approve of but, Hell, I ain't payin' for it.

Now, I'm off to fix the post and then find the jackhole who reported me. And, really, it's kinda funny as to what's considered okay and what's considered a violation of terms.

This was actually going to be a post with pictures of players from all the teams featured today, but, since the majority of the player's have yet to receive their 'shirts are forbidden' memo, this post will be soley in honor of the Host Nation.

All the pics of the German team were from the World Cup Slash comm. Who are apparently seasoned veterans in the 'must find homoerotic pics of footballers' category.

It's all [personal profile] lostingeekdom's fault!! In preparation for the World Cup, she gave the rallying cry for Shallow Viewers *everywhere*. And, really, when it comes to the Shallow, I am soo very, very weak! So, I bring you an update chockful of Shallow Viewing. But, be warned, this is not dial-up friendly, and just gets gayer with every pic!
